COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
European-style extra-dry over ice. The champagne of ciders; combining subtlety and sophistication; the epitome of unforced elegance. A crisp fresh apple bouquet with a brisk, refined finish that lingers on the palate.

Meh...an average cider. Aroma was alright, but very faint for the style. Light apple aromas. Pour was cloudy and near clear with no bubbles or head. Taste was (as the description says) very dry. Dry and almost flavorless. Little apple flavor is there but it doesnít carry through to the finish. Itís like an afterthought. It is a refreshing drink and would be good in the summer, but not very exciting

I'm not a big cider fan but this Cider has a nice clean finish without that Apple syrupy flavor and I really enjoy having more than one ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Slightly hazy yellow pour. Surprisingly no carbonation bubbles evident. Smells like sour apple. Tastes like apple juice with a bit of alcohol. Finishes sour. More like apple juice than cider.

Aroma is light and fruity. Tart sweetness as well. Appearance is like a champagne, but less carbonated. Taste is like a champagne, but with a tart and semi-sweet green apple flavor. Finish starts sweet, but quickly changes to a nice, dry finish. This is super easy to drink. Very light and thrust quenching. At 5.5% ABV, itís not anything that is not going get you too hurt if you drink a couple. I think the Cripsin is a solid choice for a cider. Itís light, crisp, and refreshing. Itís the perfect alternative to white wine or champagne. I will be looking for more Crispin ciders in the future!

Pours a clear gold with a thin white head...lively. aroma has fresh apples and faint honey. Flavor is apple cider with a touch of white wine. Mouthfeel is medium/full and the finish is appley/winey and dry.

Aroma is of apple candy and fresh green apples. The flavor is sweet and slightly soapy. Very low carbonation, almost flat. Some more carbo would have pushed this into a mid 3 rating. The finish is tart and very abrupt with an almost lactic, creamy acidity. No complexity on the finish, itís very clean.

3/5/12. 12oz bottle. Clear light yellow pour with no head. Huge jolly rancher apple aroma with touches of yeast and honey. Sweet apple flavor, a bit of cider and honey, with more lingering apple. Brut? My ass.

Aroma is very tart apples. The flavor is apple skin, apple juice and a mild sweetness, along with a dry finish. Kind of basic for Crispin but it was pretty decent.

Well...finally. A Crispin cider that is worth drinking (though I like their sake yeast one, too). The aroma is big with green apple, almost too big to be believed as all natural...so Jolly Rancher. The carbonation fades surprisingly fast, but the flavor sticks it out, giving it a dry but with a hint of sour (still, tempered acidity). Big flavor and fruity chewing gum flavor. Very drinkable. (bottle)

Clear golden yellow with a head that foams up quickly, and goes away too fast. It has an exciting crisp apple aroma, with a candy sweetness to back it up. I actually like the aroma very much. Unfortunately, the flavor is way too sweet. The label clearly says "extra dry," but this is not dry at all. Itís like soda. I can only imagine that the folks at Crispin have no idea what dry means. Still, itís not bad. I actually like sweet drinks. Unfortunately, my bottle is nearly flat. No carbonation to tickle the tongue and balance out the sweetness. Overall, this seemed like a promising cider. It just didnít work out. Why is it so hard to find a decent cider here in California?
